Dear Tzung-Hsing,

 

Please find the answers to your questions as follows:

 

1.     Is it required for all ICH existing members to sign ISPA?

Yes, as by April 2013 SIS will become the only means to access the ICH when the ICH Web is phased out.

2.     When is the due date to send ISPA to IATA?

It must be returned before any access to SIS for set up or member profile or download of incoming invoices is possible. As paper copies and supporting documents will cease to be shipped from January onwards, it is highly advisable to return it by then to avoid settling ICH bills without sight of the invoices.

3.     Is it required for a participant to have two persons to sign the agreement?  Any ranking requirement? CEO/CFO/ or Revenue Accounting Manager will do?

Two signature boxes are provided for your convenience. Your company procedures or legal requirements may specify more or fewer signatures. This is up to you. The signing party or parties must have suitable authority under your company policy. We have no specific requirements for anything other than the determination of bank accounts for bilateral settlement, which have to have CFO signatures.

4.     Shall a participant simply sign a print out copy of the file downloaded from SIS website?

Yes, this is a standard agreement from the RAM and you can do this. The PDF version supplied has form fields for name, company, etc which you can complete on screen using Adobe, and then print, sign and return to IATA. If you cannot complete the fields on screen, you may print, complete, sign and send to IATA.

Hope that clarifies.

Rgds,

Ashley

Dear Ashley,
 
Thanks for you reply.
 
Do you mean that ICH existing members can continue to use ICH-WEB to claim billing without signing ISPA after IS-WEB go live on P01OCT2011 till APR2013?
 
I can not find the articles regarding bank accounts for bilateral settlement in ISPA .
 
Best regards,

Hi Tzung-hsing,

 

Yes – this is correct. However, please also note that the old IDEC service will be discontinued in Sep 2012.

 

As for the bank account details for bilateral settlement can be found in Annex 2 of the Sign-Up and Certification Guide.

 

Rgds,

Ashley
